Meet our haiku. Little thoughts of cheese. Closely related to Sonnet, Haikus are one-offs that come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Earthy, rich, softly sharp with a subtle tang, this cheese is made with our goat’s delicious milk and is filled with the tastes of our hillside. Seasonally Available in limited editions. $30/lb. Sold by the pound.

This years haiku is a softer, more supple version of sonnet, velvety at the round and perfectly paired with a little plum and fennel chutney. It has been getting rave reviews at market and tastings. It is very very tasty.

Our tomme-style, cave-aged beauty was awarded a winner’s ribbon at the 2014 American Cheese Society competition! We hand-make Sonnet once or twice a week during the spring and summer and age it for several months here at the farm. We use exclusively milk from our own goats which ensures freshness and a seasonality to the flavor. Creamy, nutty, sharp, SMOOTH — Sonnet has often been described to us as Manchego-like.
